  1. I'm going to miss Hazel on CBS 2 but she's a great anchor and it seems like she already has chemistry with Dan Mannarino. I bet they'll be a very exciting team to watch.
  2. Hazel Sanchez left CBS 2 last month after 21 years: https://www.facebook.com/hazelsanchez/posts/10227892059945996?__cft__[0]=AZV1Zbk6QSz0uiBuLapFI7_6T6huWemOqm0OvU3XaMwGQHK5S8_guZlQrg1etCkoOYD91xcgdc6dWhGHfHGSAg7YsyTGvzdVSbh2TRcFcZ06nTMlFFSGQLgVeJjF0d5ssdI&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R She joined in 2000 as a reporter but often filled in as an anchor in the morning those days. In recent months, she began to have more fill-in opportunities again, so I was surprised to see her suddenly disappear. "I’m especially thankful the next chapter of my life will keep me close by. All I ca
  3. Not a bad refresh. I'm not a fan of the "live" and time not being on the screen all the time as they rotate with the show's name ("REPORTS" during the day). I also don't like how the lower-third shrinks when displaying someone's name (they've done this for a while). I do like the different colors for different shows and topics and how the bug's colors change to match.
  4. Just wanted to make sure that noggi's correction didn't get lost by being an edit instead of a new comment. Here's the announcement of the investigation that was announced yesterday: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2021-01-29/cbs-hires-outside-law-firm-peter-dunn-racism
  5. One of two pretty damning stories about Peter Dunn in the LA Times today. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2021-01-24/cbs-television-stations-peter-dunn-racism-sexism Some quotes but I recommend reading the whole thing:

  7. Has anyone else noticed how Fox News' countdown clocks always count UP for the tenths of a second? I think I first noticed it in during election coverage in 2016. Weird.
  8. Very sad to hear this news. I used to enjoy watching TalkBack Live after school. It helped me as a kid learn to understand different points of view and be less sure of my own opinions.
  9. I remember him doing this on CBS for The Saturday Early Show (and I think he brought it over to CBS 2 as well sometimes). I had no idea he had been doing this far longer than that. Thank you for sharing!
  10. I think their intention is to keep it on the screen for a while so, if it's rather transparent, it's obstructing less of the action.
  11. I'm a fan of the new look overall. The previous look was too bland and did not present the energy that you think of when you think of Fox. The touchdown graphics are definitely huge but do the trick if you're watching in a bar and not directly in front of a screen.
  12. You could use that argument about any discussion on this board. As long as we don't say something like "people are going to be protesting in the streets if the station changes their logo," I think we're fine here. New anchor? Most viewers just want their news. New graphics? Most viewers just want their news. New set? Most viewers just want their news. New music? Most viewers just want their news. That's why we have TVNT, so that we don't have to bore our real life friends with our mostly trivial comments.
  13. The phrase "special report" has so much history across the networks. "Breaking news" has of course become abused. I think the three network evening newscasts use it for the majority of the stories in their first block, even if it's about a candidate who dropped out of the race at 10 a.m. Does this mean there won't be any generic ABC News Special Report graphics? Will they all be created specifically to deal with the planned coverage, such as the impeachment trial open they've been using the last few weeks?
